First half of trail climbs steeply through meadows of thick mule ears to a high ridge with views of Bear Valley Ski Area and Mokelumne Wilderness. A few choice camp spots along the ridge. Second half is much easier with a stop at an historic cowboy cabin. Everything is open to green-sticker vehicles except the last mile along Cabbage Patch Road. More OHV roads available west of this trail. See MVUM.
